Silly and energetic, though sometimes it feels like that's about all there is to say about it. There are some fun scenes, though most of the best parts seemed loaded towards the first half, and overall things felt a bit long. The big foxtrot sequence is probably the most memorable part, and a stand out bit of editing for the year.

I don't find Ossi to be a very good romantic lead, but she's a great silent comedienne. Since this film leans heavily towards the comedy that's not a bad thing at all. Even 10 years before sound you can sense Lubitsch's writing desperately wanting to be delivered with great energy, and yet it never feels out of place in a silent. He manages to work within the medium of the time and make a rather energetic and funny film and layer in some subtext to boot.

Its comedy revolves largely around making fun of the rich and privileged, some of it a bit dated. For some reason there are lots of seemingly unnecessary intertitles, that interrupt the flow of the story. It's decent fun and has some very funny scenes, but I much prefer Lubitsch's Die Puppe from the same year over this.

Was fortunate enough to see this very funny Lubitsch accompanied by a live soundtrack by the postmodern rock quartet Bee vs. Moth at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival. Fantastic sets, great comedic performances and an epidemic outbreak of the foxtrot!

I watched it with an electro acoustic live performance. At the least grotesque comedy isn't my cup of tea. The wedding scene and art direction throughout the movie is top notch.
